Janet Weis Writers Institute Scholarship
The Writers Institute at Susquehanna University will offer as many as 10 Janet Weis Writers Institute Scholarships of at least $20,000 each to creative writing majors in 2015.
The scholarships, partially funded by the Degenstein Foundation, are renewable for four years ($80,000 total) as long as a 3.2 grade point is sustained in the creative writing major. To be eligible for consideration, students must apply with a 10-12 page portfolio of fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction or a combination of these genres by Feb. 1. The winners, chosen by the Susquehanna creative writing faculty, will be notified no later than Feb. 15.
